The Beaverton Community Band (Martin Sobelman, Conductor) will hold its Spring Concert on Sunday, June 18th, 2023, at 3:00 P.M. at The Village Church, 330 SW Murray Blvd, Beaverton, OR.
The band proudly presents a musical journey back to the movie music we love. The band will highlight the concert with music by Elmer Bernstein, John Williams, the Italian music master for “Spaghetti Westerns” Ennio Morricone, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Chuck Mangione.
Galloping horses, stampeding cattle, and lots of dust are images of the Wild West captured in John Williams’ music from The Cowboys. Scottish immigrants to Australia inspired the music from Far and Away, also by Williams.
Best known for the haunting melodies in a trilogy of 1960s westerns, Ennio Morricone wrote the movie music for the movies Sergio Leone made famous with the then little-known actor Clint Eastwood. A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly centered around Eastwood’s taciturn gunslinger, known as “The Man With No Name.”
Prepare to be charmed by the music from Encanto by Lin-Manuel Miranda, a Disney animated film about a teenager who is the only member of her family without magical powers. Also on the program is music from a little-known movie called The Children of Sanchez by Chuck Mangione, which features a flugelhorn playing the central theme.
Adults: $15 — Senior / Veteran: $10 — Students under 12: free — Family of 4: $30
